John McCain Summary and Analysis

John McCain, Senator from Arizona, felt he was never an outstanding athlete, but enjoyed his experiences nonetheless. John wrestled in school and boxed at the Naval Academy. John's experiences with boxing helped him through his imprisonment in Vietnam, giving him the perseverance to survive. As a senator, John began working to clean up American sports because he felt they had such an impact on people that it was important to keep them pure.

John McCain used his good memories of sports and his love of the games to help him in his career to make a difference for all of sports and its fans. John also learned through sports how to persevere and how to survive, and from that, survived the worst five years of his life when he was held prisoner in Vietnam.
